    CNN’s Camerota acted like a shocked adolescent as she spoke about Jared Kushner’s meeting with a Russian banker as if this is something new for businessmen. Governor Sununu came back at Camerota and kept asking her what exactly is she concerned about? Of course she brings up the Trump-Russia collusion that doesn’t exist: Camerota: “You should be concerned if there was collusion and that’s what Congress- Sununu: “I don’t see any evidence of collusion. Do you?” Camerota: “No.” Sununu: “Ok that should end your reporting right there! You should put an exclamation point after your ‘No’!” Camerota went on to...
  • The McCain-Follieri Love Boat - The Maverick and the Celebrity Con Man

    The Nation ^ | September 11, 2008
    John McCain has been hammering rival Barack Obama for being little more than a vapid "celebrity" and "elitist." But The Nation has obtained a photo revealing just how star-struck a straight-talking maverick can become when offered the chance to celebrate his birthday aboard a yacht filled with celebrities--even if one of those celebrity types turns out to be an A-list con man. The photograph substantiates reports that in late August, 2006, McCain celebrated his 70th birthday aboard a yacht, the Celine Ashley, rented by A-list con man Raffaello Follieri and his then-movie star girlfriend Anne Hathaway. In the current edition...

    John Sununu, the former New Hampshire senator and John Kasich supporter, urged Republican voters to “choose the strongest nominee they can — someone who will win.” But he thinks Republicans may “look at alternatives” if “we have a nominee who is a disaster for the party.” On Breitbart News Daily, Stephen K. Bannon asked Sununu what he thought about the potential for a third party candidate should Trump become the nominee. Sununu cautioned that if Hillary Clinton is not defeated, she would continue Obama’s agenda, and would be able to appoint a Supreme Court nominee. “That is one of the...

    Whom Donald Trump has insinuated is unintelligent — fired back on Monday, calling the billionaire developer and Republican presidential front-runner a "lefty liberal" who's "thin-skinned" and "all mouth." In an explosive interview with Newsmax TV's Steve Malzberg, the former New Hampshire governor who also served as chief of staff to President George H.W. Bush, lashed out at Trump's nose-thumbing barb which was reported by the Wall Street Journal. "Can you believe this guy? He was fired like a dog and he doesn't even realize it," Trump said of Sununu. "That's funny coming from a guy who's got four major billion-dollar...

    Florida might have its share of Republican presidential candidates but one former presidential candidate who ran twice in the Sunshine State is behind U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. Former U.S. Sen. Bob Smith, R-N.H., who ran twice for the U.S. Senate in Florida, was named as a co-chair of Cruz’s veterans outreach team on Wednesday. Smith joins U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine, R-Okla., and Texas state Sen. Brian Birdwell as co-chairs of “Vets for Ted” while Bill Connor will be national director. Cruz has also named Smith, a Navy veteran, as part of his team in New Hampshire, home of the...

    John Sununu, did you just call Barack Obama lazy? Quick: someone call the PC police! But before we slap the race-card cuffs on you, Andrea Mitchell, being the nice MSM lady she is, will offer you the chance to take back your horrifying comment! That's essentially what went down on Mitchell's MSNBC show this afternoon. Critiquing President Obama's listless debate performance, Romney adviser Sununu said that it revealed how "how lazy and detached" he is. Replied an appalled Mitchell: "Governor, I want to give you a chance to maybe take it back. Did you really mean to call Barack Obama,...

    Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu, a co-chairman of Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, on Tuesday dismissed a new poll showing President Obama up by 15 points in the Granite State as "a piece of garbage" and predicted Mr. Romney ultimately would win the state by 2 to 3 points. "Let me just test your political wisdom," Mr. Sununu said to host Chuck Todd on MSNBC's "The Daily Rundown." "Do you think it's possible for that to be right? No, you know it's a piece of garbage." "I believe it's head-to-head in New Hampshire," Mr. Sununu continue, "and I've seen enough...

    In presidential politics, the man cable-television pundits may fear most is a 73-year-old retired mechanical engineer from southern New Hampshire. John H. Sununu, the former Granite State governor, is Mitt Romney’s most pugnacious and ubiquitous surrogate, and he’s shaking up the 2012 campaign. “He is our party’s honey badger,” says GOP chairman Reince Priebus, playfully referencing an Internet meme about a relentless badger. Over the past year, Sununu has castigated Fox News’s Juan Williams, CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, and NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, among many others, for defending the president’s record or touting left-leaning positions. Most of Sununu’s televised battles have become...

    Juan Williams: He's (Mitt Romney) had a rough couple days here. John Sununu: Yeah, he had a rough week. Obama gets endorsed by Hugo Chavez and Mitt Romney gets endorsed by Lech Walesa. That's a rough week, isn't it? Let's get right down to it. Let's start up with the little dust up in England. Can you imagine the scandalous exhibitionist newspapers in England criticizing an American presidential candidate for saying exactly the same thing that those same newspapers had in their own headlines the week before? Come on. The American press hand-in-hand with the British press is making something...

    It really has been hysterical watching the Obama-loving media the past few weeks defend the President using bogus information reported by the Washington Post falsely accusing Mitt Romney of outsourcing jobs while at Bain Capital. This has become so comical that former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu (R) couldn't hold back the laughs as Andrea Mitchell did exactly that Tuesday on the MSNBC program bearing her name (video follows with transcript and commentary): John Sununu Laughs at Andrea Mitchell Defending Obama's Use of Bogus Romney Outsourcing Claims ANDREA MITCHELL, HOST: Isn't it a winning issue for the White House fundamentally,...

    Via Business Insider, your feelgood video of the day. Think of it as a companion piece to Gallup’s new poll showing the steep decline in respect for the media over the past 20 years. She’s out to prove that Romney’s the real offshorer-in-chief despite ample evidence to the contrary; Sununu’s having none of it, and her reaction is so feeble that he can’t help but giggle. I don’t think he’s laughing to spite her either; he’s genuinely tickled by the transparency of the game being played. You can afford to laugh, I guess, when confidence in television news stands at...

    Over the last few days, since Romney clinched the GOP nomination for President by going over the 1,144 committed delegates needed with his win in the Texas Primary on Tuesday, May 29, 2012, a number of new endorsements have come in for Romney's bid for the Presidency. These include George Shultz, former Secretary of State; Condoliza Rice, former Secretrary of State and National Security Advisor; Mike Huckabee, former Governor of Arkansas and presidential candidate; and Nancy Reagan, wife of President Ronald Reagan. Here's what each of them had to say on the date they endorsed Romney: NANCY REAGAN endorses Mitt...

    Some conservatives are upset with Mitt Romney for effusing over former Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell, who has endorsed him for president. But Forget O’Donnell, who has little clout and influence. What conservatives should really find disconcerting is that Romney has trotted out former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu to bash Newt Gingrich. Sununu, you may recall, served as chief of staff for the elder George H.W. Bush. As such, he was instrumental in pushing through far-reaching liberal initiatives that made Teddy Kennedy proud. There was, for instance, Bush’s...

    Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu became the latest boldfaced name to endorse Romney, an announcement that came on the front page of the Sunday Union Leader. Sununu will join Romney on Monday when he files his paperwork with the secretary of state's office to become an official candidate in the New Hampshire primary. The former White House chief of staff, among the most prominent Republicans in the state, said in an interview that he'll "help in any way that they want," but that Romney is already well-positioned to win the state.

    The Subprime home mortgage collapse...a Primer. It's ALL about the CRA of 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) of 1977 - This required banks to offer credit throughout their entire market area for “underserved” populations and small businesses. The CRA gave incentives to help low income borrowers become “home owners”. Liberals call this group “low income borrowers”. Conservatives call them a RISK!The CRA was passed by the Carter administration. In 1995 the Clinton administration authorized subprime loans under the CRA. Democrats added these provisions for the securitization of subprime loans and then ENFORCED the lending to high risk individuals. By 2000,...

    At about 3 p.m. on Wednesday a group of anti-war protesters entered Sen. John Sununu's Elm Street office. By 11:30 nine were still sitting around, refusing to leave. All nine managed to get themselves arrested. No doubt they are proud of themselves, but the question is, what did this little stunt accomplish? Besides disrupting the work of Sen. Sununu's staff, the protesters achieved nothing. No one's opinion was changed, nor was Sen. Sununu's position on the war. Does anyone really believe the senator would change his vote based on the rude antics of nine peaceniks? Yes, the protesters received some...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Last fall, Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., came to Connecticut to help Democratic Senate candidate Ned Lamont in his bid to unseat veteran Sen. Joe Lieberman. Lamont is now returning the favor. He and the Massachusetts Democrat are teaming up to target Republican senators they say are blocking efforts to end the Iraq war. Lamont, a political novice whose anti-war views fueled his summer primary win over Lieberman, sent out a fundraising pitch on Friday to about 3 million people on Kerry’s national e-mail list. "Last year, Connecticut Democrats heard my call for an end to the war...

    The U.S. Senate overwhelmingly voted to end a filibuster and moved closer to renewal of the USA Patriot Act. Senators voted 96-3 Thursday to stop debate regarding a compromise on the Patriot Act. All three of the senators who voted to keep debate going were Democrats ... Some aspects of the act were to expire at the end of 2005 but the White House sought to make the bill permanent. Congress gave the act short extensions, the most recent of which will end March 10.
